Wisconsin knocked off Ohio State on Saturday at the Kohl Center, handing the Buckeyes their first loss of the season. The Badgers fans rushed the floor after beating the top team in the country and apparently some of them were disrespectful. Buckeyes freshman Jared Sullinger wrote on his twitter after the game that he was spit on by fans. Here’s what he said, as pointed out by The Last Angry Fan:
“BuckeyeNation if you ever decide to rush the court. Don’t ever spit on the opponents. Just a lil tip from me to you. … To be spit on is just nasty. On top of that in my Face. Before and after the game. Smh. I just kept walking. More fuel to the fire.”
SMH is short for “shaking my head,” but you could probably get the point that he was pretty disgusted by the actions of those fans. It’s pretty hard to dispute anything he wrote — why else would he say that stuff if it didn’t happen? If it did and no fight broke out, then I take my hat off to Sullinger for acting maturely. I can only imagine how radical the reaction would have been from other players if it happened to them. And that is truly surprising too — it doesn’t sound like Wisconsin fans at all.
